Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The strut housing on the driver's side rusted completely and broke. It caused the inner fender to touch the brake master cylinder. I had to pay to have this repaired out of pocket, and then received a recall notice several months later. I would like to know what the next step is for reimbursement.

How can a major car company build a vehicle that has so many rust problems. My 1998 Pathfinder has so many rust problems. The company has had recall on the front strut housing, filler gas tube. Why can't the company stand up and take care of all the rust problems. Ever 1998 Pathfinder has rust issues fenders rear quarter panels. If you paid $1000,00 for factory running boards they all have rusted off. Why is it that the owners have to accept the problem with all these rust issues" this is my first and last Nissan I will ever own. Oh did I also tell you the transmission has been replaced, rear end makes noise, the distributor has been replaced filler tube, now the strut tower is rusting. Is this even a safe vehicle to operate on the road"

I discovered that the left front strut tower has begun to tear away from the rest of the body at its base. There is visible corrosion at the base. I recently noticed unusual swaying after hitting bumps at highway speed. The top of the strut tower is obviously out of alignment with the opposite tower. The brake line to the left front wheel is now under stress. There have been no known collisions with the vehicle. No known incident to cause damage. No heavy off-road. Veh. Has been used to tow.
